VANCOUVER, Aug. 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Compass Gold Corporation (TSXV: CVB), which is focused on gold exploration in Mali, today announced its intention to pursue a listing of its securities on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX).
The company is at the early stages of this process and intends to work towards an application to the ASX later this year. Compass has appointed GMP Securities as lead manager and corporate advisor to the listing process.
